Active or passive
Doesn't matter. They're super quiet and will work well with either active or passive basses.
This blade-type pickup offers reduced output and a flat response. The bridge pickup has a defined, percussive character. The neck pickup has a warm tone. Used together, you get a solid tone with a slight dip in the mid-range; perfect for slap-style playing. The Stack design eliminates annoying hum. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable and logo cover.
Calibrated neck and bridge set. Best when used together with STC-2 or -3 Tone Circuits for optimal tonal control.
Can be used with either 4- or 5-string basses. Note that this pickup is not a direct retrofit for Fender Jazz V, but fits many popular 5-string basses. Will accommodate string spacings up to 2.9" (73.6mm) for either pickup.
"One bass to rule them all, one bass to find them, one bass to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."
